Welcome to our school
At Ebor Academy Filey our core values centre around three words: ‘Aspire, Believe, Achieve’ and they are at the heart of everything we do and everything we will ask of our staff, students and parents, and wider community.
I believe that everyone needs aspirations to truly succeed and this is especially true of young people. We want to encourage all learners to develop a love of learning and enable everyone to reach the highest standard of which they are capable, academically and in other fields such as sport, arts and culture. We are committed to ensuring our students are safe and have clear direction and support both in school and in the community.
We believe passionately in our students and we know that with the right support here and at home they can achieve great things. They have to believe in themselves and strive for success. This includes accepting the need for the highest standards of uniform, behaviour and being ready to learn, with the right equipment, every day. Our expectations are high so as to push our students to always give of their best.
I believe that self-belief, with the right support, and encouragement to be proud of doing well, are the keys to success. The best achievements usually occur where a true partnership has been established between home, school and the young person – all of us working together to strive for the best possible outcome.
I want each and every member of our Ebor Academy Filey community to live our core values every day. To ASPIRE to be the very best they can be, BELIEVE in themselves and ACHIEVE great things. By living the values every day at school and at home we will be able to make our school community a better place to be. It will help us all – students, parents and staff – develop into good citizens who support and help each other so that each and every child fulfils their potential.
I look forward to working with you.
Mr A C Galbraith
